OP, the owner's manual for the sub (http://www.paradigm.com/downloads/OM-135.pdf) (PDF) clearly shows that you should run a single RCA-to-RCA connection from your AVR's LFE output to the sub's SUB-IN...

None of the "cheaper" subs you're eyeing is a slouch, and duals of any of them in a 2,700 cu.ft. room would be killer.

Other options include the PSA V1800 and S3000i, and the Rythmik FV15HP.

IMO:
1. In your space, I wouldn't go with anything less than a pair of SVS PB-1000s at the barest minimum.

2. That said, try the CT-80 in your space and then the MiniVee.

FWIW, the owner's manual for your system puts the sub's amp at 290W dynamic, not RMS/continuous. It's likely well under 100W RMS/continuous.

By comparison, the PB-1000's is 300W RMS / 700W peak...

Yup, there are tons of options, and there are lots of options for subwoofers, too. If you're going to replace your current set-up, half of that $1K - at a minimum - should go toward a sub. (One...

Since you like the system except for its receiver, replace just the receiver and keep enjoying the rest.

For $500, I'd go with the SVS PB-1000. Well-rated, good output and extension, five-year warranty. Buy it, try it for 45 days and:

- if you don't, send it back and...

If it's sealed (i.e., you can close the door and there are no other openings), your room is small enough that it could provide sufficient cabin gain to help a sealed sub dig very deep. In that case,...

Compared to the Dayton, the SVS is more powerful (300W RMS vs. 150W RMS), will have greater overall output and will dig deeper.

Also, SVS backs its subs with a five-year warranty. (Not sure...

What resolution are you pushing over the longer cable? Try lowering it (i.e., have the player output a lower resolution and let the PJ upscale it).

Yes. :)

As a temporary measure, grab a pair of gently-used bookshelf speakers off your local craigslist for ~$20 and you've got 5.1.

OP, you've got a large room. I'd start with a 2.1 or 3.1 system and put more money into the sub - at a bare minimum, an SVS PB-1000.
